Is the Burst Assault Rifle Vaulted in Fortnite? What You Need to Know

While Fortnite may be one of the biggest multiplayer games around right about now, it’s still technically in an early access phase. As such, the developer is still fine-tuning the game’s weapons. Here’s your answer to ‘is the burst assault rifle is vaulted in Fortnite?

For those who don’t know what the ‘Vaulted’ means, this is a term that the Fortnite’s developers use to state that a weapon has been removed from the standard battle royale game modes.

Though these weapons can sometimes make an appearance in the ‘Unvaulted’ LTM or in Creative Mode, you’re not going to see them in your average Solo match.

Sadly, as part of the v7.10 #3 content update introduced on Jan. 8, the burst assault rifle is vaulted in Fortnite. However, it’s worth noting that not all rarities of this weapon have been removed.

Only the common (grey), uncommon (green), and rare (blue) variants of the burst assault rifle have been vaulted in Fortnite. 

The epic (purple) and legendary (gold) versions of the burst assault rifle, commonly referred to as the Famas still remains in your average game of Fortnite.

It’s also worth noting that once a weapon is vaulted in Fortnite, that doesn’t mean it can’t come back. In the past, the Guided Missile Launcher was vaulted before making a return with some adjustments to how it works.

Similarly, the Dual Pistols were vaulted back in Nov. 2018 before being brought back in the v7.10 #3 content update that’s just seen the lower rarity burst assault rifles vaulted.

It may be hard to come to terms with now, but there’s always a glimmer of hope that they can return to the battlefield someday.
